their own chances, downplay the expectations. our dan lothian is up very early at the university of denver. and, dan, i understand this is the fourth time that these two men have really ever encountered one another in person. is that expected to have any effect when they meet each other on stage? >> well, certainly this is not someone who the president spent time with in the senate, has not spent a lot of time talking to him, and when they debate tonight, for 90 minutes, it will be the most time and the longest time that they have spent interacting at all. so it is an unusual, i guess, setting if you will for the president and governor mitt romney. but nonetheless, they're getting ready for this big event, the last couple of days they have been doing these mock debates, going through every possible question that will be asked, every possible scenario that will be thrown their way. so they're pretty ready for that. they'll be doing a walk through later this afternoon to get comfortable with the actual setting, to take a look at all of the various camera angles. and then as you pointed out,
ahead. you can find it at and be sure and let us know dan hurd: when i was a child, california was a leader in education funding. erika derry: and the fact that california isn't making it a priority frustrates me. dan hurd: i'm ashamed of that, and i don't want this to continue for my daughter. brenda kealing: prop 38 is going to bring a lot of money to our schools. suzan solomon: the money stays at the school site. cade derry: what i would really like to see is that the teachers... that were laid off come back to the school. navaz hurd: a smaller class size. navaz hurd: as a mom i want that. as a teacher i want that. prop 38 is an opportunity of a generation. >> the thing about congressman ryan is, he's straightforward, he has been straightforward up to now about all the significant changes he wants to make. >> he's fast on the cuff, he's a witty guy, he knows who he is and he has been doing it for 40 years, so you are not going to rattle joe biden. >> chris: vice president biden and congressman paul ryan, both trying to set expectations ahead of their debate, on t
a campaign aide told him dan quayle often quoted kennedy, he added that he didn't think dan quayle would dare make the comparison in the debate, to which the campaign aide said, if he does, there's your answer. >>> a new chapter in debate history is going to be written on wednesday night. >> both candidates spent the weekend preparing, both sides doing everything they can to manipulate expectations before the two men hit the stage. and that includes the president himself. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who is going to have the best zinger, who is going to put the most points on the board. governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> paul ryan says he doesn't think that one event will make or break their campaign. the debate will be held at the university of denver where the candidates will focus on domestic policy. >>> meteorologist paul deanno, we could just stare at this picture all day long, the beautiful sunset on the hottest day of 2012 in san francisco. wait until you see what the forecast is for next monday. stick around. i'll show it to you. >>> and
-- the most one-sided debate as lloyd bentsen and dan quayle and, brit hume you were on the podium, that night. and -- rather, the panel, and, that was the one, we are seeing the moment, where bentsen says to dan quayle, you are no jack kennedy and, you hear the roar from the crowd but he was running with dukakis and we didn't end up with him. >> i remember after the debate was over i asked the question of dan quayle, if something happened to the president, god forbid what would be the first thing you'd do and he fumbled the question and, lloyd bentsen had a smooth answer and i asked the same question again, because i thought, he had a chance to think about it while dan quayle fumbled and give him another crack at it to be air, right? and he fumbled it again and, tom brokaw asked a third time and he gave the answer mentioning jack kennedy and left the opening for him to say that. what i'm saying is, i thought at the time, man, that will turn it into a rout and will be the sound bite that plays forever, this is a bad night for the ticket. the g.o.p. ticket. and i went downstairs afterwards into
here tonight will become president of the united states. the candidates are senator dan quayle and lloyd bentsen, the democratic nominee. [applause] for the next 90 minutes, we will be questioning the candidates following a format designed and agreed to by representatives of the two campaigns. however, there are america rigid restrictions on the questions my colleagues and i may ask. the first question goes to senator quayle. you have to the minister responded. you have been criticized for your decision to stay out of the vietnam war, for your poor economic -- academic record. more troubling by some of the comments to have made in your own party. a separate -- secretary of the state said your peck was the dumbest mistake george bush could have made it. your leader added to the senate said a better qualified person could have been chosen. other republicans have been more critical in private. why do you think you have not made a more substantial impression on some of the people who have been able to observe the up close? >> the question goes to whether yes or qualified to be the
line by lloyd benson, it was in the vice presidential campaign where he said to dan quayle, i knew jack kennedy, and you're no jack kennedy. that line was said by the losing side of that campaign. no one from benson world jumped forward to say hey, i wrote that for him. there was none of that. there was no leaking like that. >> you know, look. the best big knockout punches, that wasn't really a knockout punch. dan quayle ended up punching himself in the face. a great line that comes out in the debate are the ones that seem to be unscripted that no one has tell graphed in advance. the polls have been tightening. romney is going to get some elevation just by standing on stage next to barack obama. if he ends up putting a performance that is not zinger filled, that contrasts with our expectations and ends up looking pretty good uch there, there will be a lot of people who say he won the debate. >> mitt romney goes into the debate at a 52% favorability rating with voters. mitt romney at a 42% favorability rating. i don't know how he makes that up in 90 minutes of a debate. >> thank you for
camps. dan lothian and paul steinhauser. welcome, gentlemen. >> hello. >> hello. are you excited? come on. we need to up the enthusiasm level. dan, let's start with you. team obama says no zingers. he's going to talk to those people on the couches. really? no zingers? >> well, you know, listen to what jen socky, the traveling communications or spokesperson with the campaign, she said probably not. probably not what the president will be focused on. that the president instead will be speaking to the american people, talking about moving the country forward. so that will be the focus. but i have to tell you, in the middle of a debate, no doubt we will hear some sharp responses from the president as he tries to counter what mitt romney may be throwing his way. the bottom line, though, as you pointed out, both campaigns really trying to lower expectations. you hear aides with the campaign saying that the president has not had a lot of time to practice as opposed to mitt romney who went through the primary season and has a lot of experience. and the president himself last night in a grass r
about -- >> yes. >> dan quayle. >> that famous line. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> i just reread about all the debates, they prepared that line in advance because dan quayle made that comment over and over again. both are going in with prescripted lines, having watch ed what the other candidates are saying. >> it's worth noting that mitt romney has been debating the past two years with his opponents. president obama has been practicing, no doubt. it's harder for a president to do, because he's busier and doesn't like being addressed in sortative challenging way. >> this president likes to practice in a stealth way. >> that's true. i'm sure he will be prepared. >> james fallows, thank you very much. >> my pleasure. >>> american airlines is facing new trouble this morning, faa is investigating at least two incidents where a row of passenger seats came loose in mid flight. mark strassmann is here with the story. >> inspectors look for signs of more problems. for now it doesn't look like it was caused intentionally during a
but they're not all game changers. arguably some of those moments like lloyd bentsen and dan quayle didn't change anything because michael dukakis in the final presidential debate showed sort of a remarkable lack of human affect you might say in response to bernie schultz question. >> that didn't help the game from dukakis' point of view. lloyd bentsen's line was great line. >> well rehearsed. >> well delivered, well rehearsed. what do we remember from 2008? no lines. that was not a game changing debate between senator obama and senator mccain. >> not the way it was during the primary races. one of the things that you learned from that moment with benson and quayle, is they have been watching dan quayle, this young, some would say not fully prepared senator, and not prepared for the national stage, and watching how he kept comparing himself to john f. kennedy to show that kennedy was also young and they were ready to pounce with that. >> these guys have been on both sides known each other, going to be their opponents, reviewing individual yes videotapes, studied about them, forgetting ab
recall that when lloyd benson, who was running for vice president was debating dan quayle, also running on the republican side. one was a sort of an elder statesman. the other, of course, dan quayle, new to the scene, and he -- lloyd benson, who wasn't known for the quick quip, just absolutely levelled quail when he mentioned john f. kennedy and benson took this sort of huge indig nant exception to it and said, you know, i knew jack kennedy, and you're no jack kennedy, and it became this famous sort of slice down. it was kind of the end of the debate. you look at when walter mondale was debating, and there was this age issue about reagan and whether he was -- you know, whether he was getting too old, et cetera, and he joked about it. it was after a bad debate, actually, and he joked about it and said i'm not going to make my opponents relative youth an issue here. there are things that can happen, and the dynamic really is the senior statesman and the new young upstart as you go in the joe biden and paul ryan. i think it will be fascinating to watch not just for what they say. there's a
maybe ever was lloyd benson against dan quayle. brit hume you were on the panel that night and that was the one and we are seeing the moment right here where benson says to dan quayle you are no jack kennedy and you can hear the roar from the crowd. does all this matter? >> we the debate was over i asked the question of quayle if something happened to the president god forbid what would you do? >> benson had a chance to think about it while quayle was fumbling to give him another crack at it to be fair and he fumbled it again and tom brokaw gave it another time. that left the opening for jack benson to say you are no jack kennedy. i thought at the time this will turn this into a route and be the sound bite played forever and this is a bad night tore the gop ticket. i went down stairs into the press room and saw you david broader of the washington post a long time pretty fair minded reporter and i said what do you think about this. he said there may be some marginal effect but i don't think it will make much difference. he was absolutely right. in the end it didn't make any
she cost john mccain for being on the ticket. which is huge. think back to dan quayle. i've never seen a more dramatic contrast between the competence of the two vice presidential candidates, lloyd benson, this old testament authority and dan quayle and benson delivered that devastating line. michael dukakis lost the election but the race tightened towards the end. there was a lot of considerat n consideration -- >> let me ask one last question here on this particular issue. is this going to be more fun for joe biden than 2008 was because sarah palin was someone that he had to pull punches against both because she was a woman, but also because it would not have looked good to beat up on her? is this more fun for him? >> i think he was dancing a delicate dance in 2008. you'll see he's up the p 90x 9% body fat guy. he can go as hard as he wants to. after the debate last week, he has to. >> chloe, i want to take up the issue you brought up is whether or not they are looking ahead, whether or not what they're actually doing is running for 2016. that's next. [ female announcer ] born from
, is the magic. >> remember what lloyd benson said about dan quayle and president kennedy. >> yes, that was the famous line, jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> in jim lair's book "turning point," he makes the case that they prepared that line in advance because dan quayle had made that comment over and over again. >> the comparison with president clinton. >> so both those campaigns are going in with prescripted lines having watched what the other candidates are saying. >> it's worth noting that mitt romney has been debating over the past two years with his opponents. president obama has been practicing, no doubt, but it's harder for a president to do because he's busier and doesn't like being addressed in a challenging way. >> but as michael lewis pointed out, this president likes to practice in a stealth way. >> yes, it's true. i'm sure he's going to be prepared. >> james fallows, thank you so much. >> my pleasure. >>> american airlines is facing new trouble. the faa is investigating two incidents where a row of passenger seats came loose inned
. and now the 1988 vice- presidential debate. dan quayle and lloyd bentsen of texas. the two vice presidential candidates were 25 years apart in age which provided one of the defining moments. the debate was held in omaha and was moderated by pbs's judy woodruff. >> on behalf of the commission on presidential debates, i am pleased to welcome you to this vice presidential debate. i'm judy woodruff of pbs' "macneil-lehrer news hour" and "frontline." my colleagues on the panel are -- john margolis of "the chicago tribune," tom brokaw of nbc news, and brit hume of abc news. the importance of tonight's debate is underscored by two facts. both george bush and michael dukakis said their selections of a running mate would reveal a lot about themselves. and based on the history since world war ii, there is almost a 50-50 chance that one of the two men here tonight will become president of the united states. the candidates are senator dan quayle, the republican nominee, and senator lloyd bentsen, the democratic nominee. [applause] >> for the next 90 minutes we will be questioning the candid
. >> lloyd benson and dan quayle, 2002008. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. (cheer (cheers) >> that was a fierce moment. >> that was a strong zinger and perhaps the most memorable moment from the vice-presidential debate and often, a vice-presidential debate is about assurance. can the second person on the ticket become president and step in if need be. you've got to remember in 1988 who was president? ronald reagan. lloyd benson had been in the senate 17 years, dan quayle, 7 years, that was about gravitas and the senior statesman versus the young new guy upstart. this time it's different because barack obama was in his 40's when he became president and even though joe biden is three decades older than paul ryan, that issue is muted a little bit. >> clayton: interestingly in 2008. then candidate biden, vice-presidential nominee at the time had a walk a delicate balance with sarah palin. he had to be respectful of her on the stage and strong a lot of people thought it was a tie at theened of the debate wherever you stand on it want matter, but here i
presidential candidate with michael dukakis responded to dan quayle where he said -- dan quayle had brought of john kennedy's name and bentsen was ready with their response saying that he knew john kennedy and he said you are not john kennedy. could see quayle in the background looking victimized. guest: let's take a look at a debate moment back in 2000 with al gore and george w. bush. "washington journa[video clip] >> would you to agree on a national patient's bill of rights? >> absolutely not. there is one bipartisan bill that is now pending in the congress. and the insurance companies support the other bill. they like it because it does not accomplish what needs to be accomplished, to give the decisions back to the doctors and nurses and give -- and let you go to the nearest emergency room. it lets you see a specialist if you need to. it had strong bipartisan support but is being blocked by the republican leadership in the congress and i specifically would like to know whether governor bush will support the dingell-norwood bill. >> do you see the differences between the two of you? >> i
you get at. it's also the ability to attack. remember, lloyd benson in 1988 against dan quayle said that one line to dan quayle, i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. >> if you're obama, do you attack romney or do you advertise whatever you think your own virtue is? >> every poll that came up this morning, romney sup side down in favorables and that's a bad thing. you don't need to attack hilm. you attack congress for not passing the 28% corporate, and blah, blah, blah. you don't have to now. if romney goes after him, then you rebut that. but if i'm obama, i do not attack him. you're the president of the united states. you're cool, calm, and collected. >> when andrew asked that question -- i also saw it in "the new york times." the debate handler supposedly had to tell the president, please don't be too smart. you're a professor. don't just blow them away with your details, which you could. give me the substancetive argument for president obama on what he's rung on. all i know is he wants to raise taxes on rich people. other than that, what is his substance? >> are
